Genesis is a free Chrome extension that lets you download books that are available on Amazon as PDF and e-Book. It uses Gen-Lib as a book repository to download E-books. To download just visit any book’s description page on amazon.in or amazon.com and click its icon. If that book is available in its library, then it will immediately give you download link of that particular book in PDF or E-PUB file format.
It’s a very nice extension to download books that are available on Amazon as PDF for free. Genesis reduces the headache of searching a particular book all over the internet. Do note that it might not always find you the book you are looking for, but it works well.
There are many Chrome extensions that let you search for your free book as PDF. But, Genesis lets you download them when you are looking at a book on Amazon’s website. So, it is actually much easier.
How to use Download Books Available on Amazon as PDF:
Genesis is pretty easy to use. You can easily integrate it in your Chrome browser and enjoy the easiness of downloading your favorite books as E-Pub or PDF for free. And the best part is it lets you directly download books that are available on Amazon.
Here is the complete guide for you to understand and use this extension. Go through the following steps to getting started with Genesis.
Step 1: This extension is not available on Chrome’s extension store, so you have to manually download and install it. Get it from the link provided at the end of this article.
Step 2: After downloading it, go to extensions page of Chrome and enable Developer mode. Then drag and drop this extension (.crx file) to the extensions page’s interface.
Step 3: A pop-up will appear, asking you to allow or deny the installation. Simply click on allow and Genesis will be added to Chrome, and you will be able to see it in the toolbar of Chrome. See the following snapshot for more assistance.
At this point it will be wise enough to let you know that this extension only works for Amazon.in or Amazon.com (recommended). So, if you try this extension on some other e-commerce web sites then it will fail to do what it promises. So, keep using Genesis and share your experience with us in comments :)
My Final Verdict
I really like Genesis and it worked for me for few books that i searched on Amazon.in. I will recommend you to use this extension to download most of the books as PDF or E-Book. If you are a regular book reader and often search for free E-books, then this is the extension for you.
